GK Legacy Foundation, named in honor of George (GK) Keown, is a non-profit organization created to

help Arizona residents age 25 and older better their lives through education. 

It is never too late to further your education and brighten your future and that is why we are proud to offer

scholarships through our Keep Your Chin Up Scholarship Fund.

We see higher education as the catalyst to empowering individuals to break down the barriers and transform their lives.  Higher education is not only for the future generations; it is for all people of all ages, because

everyone deserves a brighter future.

In Memory of George ("GK") Keown 
GK's favorite saying to his family when any

of them were faced with adversity was
"Keep your chin up, kid."
